Dresden Files: Transylvania
Bastion of Napoca
The Bastion of Napoca refers to the ruins of the old fortress wall that once encompassed the Old Town of Cluj-Napoca. The fort was first erected by the Romans during their colonization of ancient Dacia. After it fell to ruin, it was reconstructed in the 15th century, and sections of the wall remain as tourist attractions today.
Unknown to the tourists and daily commuters who travel the area, the aura of protection extended by the bastion through the eons continue to this day. Much as how the Bastion protected the nascent community during the Middle Ages from threat lurking in the forests and marauding armies, the Bastion continues to repel supernatural beings who may mean harm to humans.
The Bastion of Napoca acts as a Strength +3 threshold against fully supernatural beings, inflicting physical damage to their beings every exchange of an encounter while they are present. As such, supernatural beings are strongly repelled by its presence, and will go to great lengths to avoid the sting of its aura. Creatures that are affected include creatures of the Fey and full-fledged vampires and other undead creatures. The Bastion’s threshold exempts any being with more than a tenuous connection to humanity, including human Wizards, and human hybrids (Changlings, neophytes of the Red and White Courts).
